Daily Draw: Da Vinci Tarot ~ 10 of Swords
From Da Vinci's sketch titled Storm Over A Landscape. Everything seems to loom over the small village, fraught with doom and gloom. In their placement the ten swords seem more to protect and serve rather than the bearers of dark happenings.
I'm reminded by this card that at some point the worst does play out, it can't be avoided. The aces, fives, and tens periods are woven into the basic fabric of life. To refuse to understand and accept denies us the ability to travel on to the other side of violence, terror, sorrow, and pain.
"All of us are born with a set of instinctive fears, of falling, of the dark, of lobsters, of falling on lobsters in the dark..." Dave Barry 1947-
